Discover the 100-year history of Wellington's iconic cable car.

Wellington's Cable Car Museum is located in the old winding house at the cable car's upper terminus.

Watch the original winding gear in action and see the restored grip cars. Grip Car 1 is restored to its 1970s livery and Grip Car 3 to its appearance circa 1905.

Learn about the history of the cable car system and early Wellington through extensive audiovisual displays.

Visit the Museum Shop shop for a great selection of souvenirs and gifts.
